Playfully Celebrating the Richness of Greek Folk Costumes
Petros Kaminiotis - the designer of PlaymoGreek - is interested in all expressions of Greek tradition, dancing, traditional customs’ and costumes’ research. He believes that Greek tradition is considered as something old – fashioned and the majority of people are not interested in discovering it. So, he tried to find a way to present the Greek traditional costume in a more alluring and contemporary way, using a well-known toy. The upper goal is to focus not only on the adults but also on the children; the new generation which can adopt a different approach, embracing the Greek tradition. PlaymoGreek, are Playmobil figures dressed in handmade copies of traditional Greek costumes - a project that combines a childhood toy with the designer’s passion for Greek folk culture.
